New CO2 Sequestration from Finland Yields Commercially Useful Materials

December 30th, 2011 | by Susan Kraemer

The Finnish physicist Matti Nurmia has patented a different type of CO2 sequestration with real commercial potential, using very little energy in the conversion process and creating byproducts with high commercial value. His firm, Cuyha Innovation Oy (Oy means company) converts acidic CO2 into harmless bicarbonates. Nurmia's process differs from carbonization, where CO2 is neutralized with carbonate minerals such as limestone, the way that companies like California's Calera are making cement with sequestered
